Abstract The migration data used in this report are derived from the 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000 decennial census longform sample question asking where the respondent lived 5 years prior to the census.3 The Census Bureau has devoted considerable resources to making historical decennial census microdata files available for research purposes. This report presents findings based on custom tabulations of these microdata files using multiple decennial census years in a time-series analysis. Expanding on these migration data to also include data on the movers age, marital status, and educational attainment provides a fuller picture of the characteristics of specific migration streams. Young people are defined in this report as those between the ages of 25 and 39 at the time of the census. The single population includes those who have never married, as well as those who were widowed or divorced. The college educated are those with at least a bachelors degree. A mover is anyone who reported a different residence 5 years prior to the census than the one reported when the census was taken. Movers, then, may have changed their residence multiple times during the 5-year period. Moves for young people may be post-college moves or moves due to career, housing, or lifestyle changes. Finally, a migrant is a person who makes a relatively permanent change of residence across jurisdictional lines during a specified period.
